However, in modern Russian six consonant phonemes do not have phonemically distinct "soft" and "hard" variants (except in foreign proper names) and do not change "softness" in the presence of other letters: ) from a preceding consonant, making iotated vowel sound with a distinct /j/ glide.Today it is used mostly to separate a prefix from the following root.Unicode has no code points for the accented letters; they are instead produced by suffixing the unaccented letter with ⟩, which is not always distinguished in written Russian, but the umlaut-like sign has no other uses.Stress on this letter is never marked, as it is always stressed except in some loanwords. It has been used since the 16th century except that it was removed in 1708 but reinstated in 1735. It was formerly considered a diacriticized letter, but in the 20th century, it came to be considered a separate letter of the Russian alphabet.The letters ⟨⟩ and ⟨ıa⟩ survives in Church Slavonic.
Rarely, it is used to specify the stress in uncommon foreign words and in poems with unusual stress used to fit the meter.
